Pastor Rick Demastus and family
I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior when I was 12 years old. A year later God called me to go into full-time Christian service in missions. Not knowing which field He wanted me to go to, I endeavored to complete high school and go to Shawnee Baptist College. My junior year, God laid on my heart the field of Scotland. The country that used to send out its own missionaries was now the country in need of gospel preaching churches. I accepted the call and have been pursuing that goal ever since. We were ordained and sent out of Shawnee Baptist church in Louisville, KY in September of 2014 and after a few years of preparation and raising support, we made it to Scotland in August of 2017. My wife and I both graduated from Shawnee Baptist College (Pastoral Theology - Rick & Secondary Education in English & Music - Sarah). Being in God's will has been our life's goal and church planting in Scotland is without a doubt God's will for our lives.
